Fuck Proof Makeup Mini List

Fucking is fun but if you want your makeup to stay on after your face was pushed into the mattress, check these out.

Primer: Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer, Marc Jacobs Coconut Primer (sooo hydrating), Kat Von D Featherweight Primer

Foundation: Becca Ultimate Coverage Complexion Cream, Kat Von D Lock-It Foundation, Dermablend Cover Creme

Setting Powder/Spray: Makeup Forever Ultra HD Microfinish Powder, Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray, Laura Mercier Universal Translucent Setting Powder

Eyeliner: Kat Von D Ink Liner, Lancome Drama Liqui Pencil, Stila Stay All Day Liquid Liner

Mascara: Bobbi Brown Smoky Eye Mascara, Makeup Forever Aqua Smoky Extravagant Waterproof Mascara, Benefit Roller Lash Mascara

I’m not going to include lipstick because I find that it comes off anyway and when I’m heavily making out, it will end up everywhere.
Now I’m not saying that this makeup will not come off at all during sex. However, they will hold on better than some other stuff.

I recommend carrying foundation powder, eyeliner, and a concealer in your bag in case you need to touch up after you’re done.
If you like to do the whole routine in the morning but you don’t want to carry all your stuff to someone’s house, you can always ask for a couple of samples at Sephora for the liquid/creme products before you meet up with them.

Add more stuff if you want. Thanks for reading and stay safe.

I’ve been seeing this stuff all over the damn place lately and was 100% skeptical about using it as a primer. But earlier this week I was in the men’s shaving aisle at Target, waiting for Devin to pick out razors and this stuff caught my eye. And so for $5.54 I figured, what have I got to lose?

I’ve been wearing it under my foundation for the past three days and oh. my. gosh. The hype is so real! I usually have a problem with my foundation looking really cakey in between my eyebrows, around my nose, and on my top lip and it usually wears off on the tip of my nose after a few hours. But when I use this, not only does it make my foundation lay better and look super smooth on the skin, even in my problem areas, but it keeps it on all. day. long. It smells a little manly at first but otherwise, 10/10 do recommend, pick this stuff up next time you see it!

It makes me sad when you tie vegan diets with this conspiracy theory talk about how "follow the money" and "all these evil corporations are making you sick and don't want you to know" and "doctors are stupid". In my uni for example, almost all professors have stated that a plant based diet is healthy and healthier than the SAD diet. But it is not this cure-all-save-all-humans-are-herbivores thing. SAD!

I’m not saying all doctors and corporations are evil and that they are fully aware of what they are doing to us at all. It’s great that your doctors and professors think that but it’s not common knowledge amongst most average doctors that a plant based diet is healthy. I went to the doctors yesterday to get my annual blood test with Emily and it was the most painful thing ever, she hounded us about being vegan, she wouldn’t test the things we wanted to test because she claimed that they would tell us anything and clearly didn’t agree with Veganism. I get messages every single day of people saying that their doctors or nutritionist thinks Veganism is unhealthy.

When I say “ follow the money” I mean look at WHY the cancer foundation still recommends meat and dairy in their recipes even though there is overwhelming evidence that it causes it. Same with the heart and diabetes foundation. Because their biggest sponsors are meat and dairy companies. Same thing with why doctors push pharmaceuticals, because they make commissions. It’s a business. Not maybe not ALL doctors but this is common!! Yes doctors need to make money, everyone needs to make money!! I’m not saying making money is a bad thing, vegan doctors still make money but the right way, not by selling out to drugs that don’t always help.

Im trying to help others understand, if plants based eating is best way then… why are there so many that still don’t support it? Why there is so much corruption and why we should all question everything.

I can’t wait until the documentary “what the health” is released to the public (16th of march) it talks all about this!!!! And you can see the figures for yourself, and you can see the heads of the organizations ignore the questions and play dumb.

I absolutely love this Illamasqua foundation! It’s so velvety smooth and blends so well!

I present a challenge. Which I'm going to pose to one of the other side as well. Because I want to see more fans support their ships solely on their merits, the best way. Sell your ship to someone who knows the manga but isn't invested. A casual fan. Only rule, you can't compare your ship to any other ship or mention the another ship at all. This includes using characters to compare. The idea here is to promote your ship focusing only on YOUR LOVE for it. I'm curious how fans will go about this.

Where to begin?! When I entered the Vampire Knight journey I had no idea what this story and these two characters, Zero and Yuuki, would come to mean to me. They remind me so much of another real journey that was incredible to me. They are the very epitome of that beautiful wondrous time in my life. 

If you want to experience a love that is built from the ground up with the most solid foundation then I recommend that you read or reread Vampire Knight and look closely for all the radiant signs!!!

I ship Zero and Yuuki (Zeki) for a great many reasons. I would have to type a book to really clarify all of their strengths and merits together.

Let me start by saying, it’s the overall feeling I get when reading Zeki scenes. 

This is a love that is built on friendship, respect and equality. Have you ever heard the saying I’m in love with my best friend? Well that is zeki!!! Shouldn’t you be in love with your best friend?! Aren’t you going to share the entire rest of your life with this person? Don’t you want to know that there is no other who will stand by you and understand you like this person does? That is what love based on friendship as one of the key components means. There is no one who understood them better than they understood each other. No one who supported them better than they supported each other. That is the great thing about a true love with it’s foundation based on friendship!!

 Right from the beginning you can clearly see that they support one another. Yuuki fights for Zero when he is at his lowest point, making him strive to let the light back in and then Zero returns this love by standing beside Yuuki through her depression and guilt in the second half of VK and into VKM. Yuuki puts all her faith in Zero that he can overcome what he is going through, that it wasn’t this condition that defined him, rather the kind soul within him, even when Zero himself felt like he was turning into a monster.

And Zero never once made Yuuki feel like she had to second guess herself, he always knew when to stand behind her and let her shine. It was always a love built on balance, whether one was helping the other or they both were on even ground. In multiple instances they were each other’s pillar of strength when the other one felt weak or lost.

At different points in the manga they both wanted the other one to find happiness, even if it meant sacrificing their own wants. For them, just seeing the other one smile was enough. And they didn’t just wish for it they did what they could for each other so that their other half would actually be able to achieve the ability to smile from the bottom of their heart. This is truly a sign of a healthy relationship, always being selfless because you genuinely care for the other person. Love is never selfish. It is kind and selfless. Both Yuuki and Zero were this even in the times when they may have seemed a bit selfish. They still longed to find a way to help the other one smile from their heart and find true happiness. The journey has been long but I know zeki got there!!!! I know it like I know that I need air to breathe.

No matter what society or friends or predisposed notions dictated they still managed to always come back to each as if they knew subconsciously where they would find sanctuary from the darkness that surrounded them.

Everything about Zeki came naturally, right down to their ability to open up and discuss their fears and problems without feeling awkward or feeling like they might be judged. It wasn’t a love that was forced or expected, it was one that blossomed slowly and took them by surprise.

Isn’t that what love should be? A slow beautiful journey together, one filled with ups and downs and an unforeseen pit stop here and there. A love where communication is spoken with ease and straightforwardness, never fear of being condemned. It’s one that wraps you up in warmth and continues to radiate light despite any chaotic storms that may come along. Love isn’t a fairytale where the prince comes to save the princess. Real love is fighting beside one another, knowing whatever the hell happens you feel confident, at peace and safe because you draw your resilience from one another. Real love is a love that becomes more solidified with every hardship, not one that cracks and breaks under pressure. This is what Zeki is to me. 

Never have I ever or do I think I ever will find an otp that means more to me than this couple. Their journey and progression, even when they take a step backwards in order for them to learn to move forward, has mesmerized me like no other. I feel truly blessed to have been able to be a part of their journey. Good and bad, right and wrong, happy and sad, ugly and beautiful, sickness and health, weak and strong. They are everything that a great love is supposed to be. Love is multi-layered. It is never perfect but it makes you perfectly happy to share the journey through life with your partner. If you get to experience this kind of love in your lifetime consider yourself very very lucky. If you are still waiting for that kind of love come along for zeki’s journey. They won’t disappoint you.

They and their love for one another is simply RADIANT!!!

 Like I said I would need to truly write a book to really tell you what this couple represents to me. I love them beyond words!!! They are truly my otp of otps!!!

Thanks for dropping by anon :)

i have really bad cystic acne and a lot of pitting/scarring from it but NOT a whole lot of time or money to spend on fixing or covering it... any advice?

YEAH!!! turmeric face masks (these u can make at home) do wonders for post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (which i assume is what u mean by scarring?) and chemical exfoliators should help w/ the pitting !! so if u can find products within ur budget with AHA/BHAs in them tht should help u out… i’d also recommend a clarisonic style spin brush for when u wash?? tht aids in exfoliation n new skin growing….. clarisonics r mad expensive tho so a cheaper alternative i’ve used n recommend is olay’s brush !

as for fixing it i’d check ur insurance plan and see if the dermatologist is covered?? in mine it is so derm visits/prescriptions r free ! treating severe cystic acne can be rly hard w/o a dermatologist but if its not covered id start looking to youtube bc there are plenty of ppl you can find who have similar issues n remedies to offer

as for cheap full coverage foundations my fav is the loreal truematch liquid foundation but if u save up some really awesome full coverage foundations i recommend are the urban decay all nighter liquid foundation or the makeup forever hd foundation stick :-)

Foundation recommendations?

A lot of foundations that I’ve tried all have yellow undertones and it looks weird with my skin color. Anyone know of a good foundation that has cool or peachy undertones?

Foundation 101 for Cosplay

Hi everyone,

Okay so foundation is very important if you want to even out your skin. There are 6 main points you should consider when it comes to foundation for cosplay:

  1. Camera friendly
  2. Long lasting
  3. Choose something according to your skin     type
  4. Your foundation should match your neck and     chest
  5. Know the coverage you want to go for
  6. SPF/Sunscreen, is it worth the risk?

Keep in mind that I constantly keep these kind of posts updated. 

CAMERA FRIENDLY

You’re probably gonna be taken in photos a lot so your foundation has to make you look good! When I say camera friendly, you don’t necessary have to buy an expensive HD foundation but at least it should have a matte/satin finish. Don’t get me wrong, dewy finishes are beautiful and I personally prefer this over a matte complexion on a daily basis but in photos… not gonna lie… it’s harder to make it look goodt. You gotta find somebody who has good knowledge about photography and lighting if you want to work with a natural dewy complexion… Especially if you’re gonna have a photoshoot with a flash. Not only it’s gonna create a white cast on your face but it will also make you look sweaty.

To be camera friendly here are some tips:

-        DO use a matte primer

-        BE aware of SPF foundations or putting sunscreen before because they reflect in pictures. Go see my last point because there’s a part in that post dedicated especially for this topic.

-        DO set your foundation with a setting/mattifying powder

-        DO NOT choose a translucent powder… Otherwise it’s gonna make your skin looks ashy

LONG LASTING

I’m sure you want to spend some time having fun at a con and not always be worried about how you look. That’s why I recommend going with a long lasting foundation. Which means you shouldn’t always have to touch up throughout the day and it should be crease resistant.

Here are some tips to keep your foundation lasts longer:

-        PRIMER is quite important. It’s going to create a fence between your skin care and makeup. Plus, it makes the foundation lasts… However, I’d suggest looking at the first foundation’s ingredient and finding the same first ingredient in your primer. For example, MUFE HD foundation is meant to be worn with MUFE HD primer because both are water based products. Otherwise, I’m afraid your foundation won’t stay because another ingredient we use for primers is oil. Imagine an oil based primer with a water based foundation… Oil and water DON’T mix together. (BIG CREDITS TO GOSS WAYNE FOR THIS INFORMATION)

-        Set your foundation with powder… I think I haven’t said it enough. If you have very dry skin you can skip this step.

-        Optional but if you feel like you want to, use a setting spray.

-        Choose a foundation that claims to be long lasting. Not gonna lie, there is a lot of absurd terms (like 24H wear) that are only there for marketing, because let’s be real: who’s gonna wear makeup for 24 hours? Nobody. That’s why I’d go for a foundation that is better suited for your skin type! Which leads… to my other point!

CHOOSE SOMETHING ACCORDING TO YOUR SKIN TYPE

Like I said before, the lasting power of your foundation will depend on your skin type. For example, if you use a cream foundation on oily skin, it’s gonna drag for sure. If the foundation claims to be for ‘’all skin types’’, you should be great. 
(This is just a generalization)

Here’s a chart on what I’d suggest for all skin types:

Dry: Creams and liquids (that will not turn into a powder finish… for example I’d stay away from MAC Studio Fix fluid) 

Oily: Liquids and powders. 

Combination: Depends on what’s more prominent, either dry or oily

Normal: Lucky, you can try whatever you want

Sensitive: Depends if you have dry or oily skin… Just be careful on the products you’ll be using because it could break you out. Fragrance-free products are highly recommended. In fact, I highly suggest knowing what ingredients you are sensitive to.

MATCH YOUR FOUNDATION TO YOUR BODY

People have this huge misconception that they must do a simple swatch on the jaw line then blend it out. If it disappears onto the skin, it’s the right shade. That is wrong… Most of the time! Why? Some people tend to be slightly lighter on the face than the rest of their body. So your foundation should match your entire body. If you want a more natural look, the first tip I can give you here is to find the right shade of foundation… Otherwise it’s gonna look like a mask. In order to find a good match, I would much rather test the color on your neck and chest than your face and jawline. 

Also another thing people forget is the undertone. A lot of people get confused between the shade and the undertone. The difference is that the shade determines on a scale from fair to ebony, how pale or dark we are. The undertone is the pigmentation of our skin. There are 4 different ones: cool (pink), warm (yellow, golden, orange), neutral (both cool and warm or none of them) and olive (green, brown). A common way to know your undertone is to look at your veins. If your veins are blue-ish, it means you have cool undertones. If it is green-ish you’re warm toned. If there’s a mix of these two, you’re neutral toned. I, personally, don’t follow this tip because it’s overall simply confusing… and especially since you can determine an undertone just by looking at it, or even with somebody’s ethnicity. For example, East Asian people have 99% of the time a warm (yellow/golden) undertone. 

I could make an entire post on this topic but I’m just generalizing here. There’s so much more to tell about skin tones and colors.

Tip #1: If it’s hard for you to find the right foundation shade(especially if you’re very pale), you can always just use concealer. Since the ‘’Kim Kardashian contour and highlight’’ pass, companies have released lighter concealer shades.
Tip #2: You can’t decide what shade matches you the best? I’d suggest to go for the lightest one and if it’s too light, you can always use a darker setting powder or bronzer to correct the shade. 
Tip #3: People with oily skin should probably go a shade lighter since most products tend to oxidize easier. 

COVERAGE

There are several types of coverages you can go for: sheer, light, medium, buildable and full.

Sheer: Very natural finish. Barely any coverage. Just there to even out your skin tone. Best for people with good skin. For example: Tinted moisturizer.

Light: Natural finish. A little more coverage than the sheer one and evens out the skin tone. Best for people with good skin. Depending on the foundation and on how many layers you put, you can get a medium coverage. For example: Western BB creams.

Medium: Can range from a natural to a heavy feel depending on how many layers you apply. Most medium coverage foundations can turn into a full coverage if you apply a second layer. For example: Asian BB Creams, most foundations, Make Up For Ever HD Foundation…

Buildable: When you can build up the coverage to a higher one. The most recommended method when you have a foundation like this, is to wait a few minutes for the first layer to set, then apply the second one.

High/full: Actually the most ‘’controversial’’ foundation of them all. I think it’s important to talk about some points of a high coverage foundation… Most of them feel indeed heavier just with one layer but they cover well. You may not even need concealer. However, they can look cakey, especially if you use powder on top. It may also accentuate the appearance of pores. BUT if you use it in moderation it can create an amazing photographic skin. You can sheer it down with a little bit of moisturizer or use a fix spray to feel fresher.

SPF/SUNSCREEN

Now, the reason why using SPF or sunscreen can be problematic is because it can create a white cast (which looks ghostly) on photos.  Also, it depends on where you are and if the flash is required. If you are outdoors, this may not be a problem, just be sure your face is matte.
The higher the SPF is, the higher the chances of a white cast (Side note: there’s not a lot of difference between SPF30 or SPF50 when it comes to protection… Good sun protection is the one that you will re-apply every 2 hours.) My only one recommendation here is: protect your skin, even if there is a white cast. Also, there are exceptions. Not all kind of sunscreens or foundations with SPF photograph bad. Mineral sunscreens (titanium dioxide and zinc oxide) tend to be the ones that will leave a white face because they reflect the sun rays whereas the chemical ones absorb them instead. 

For example: MAC’s Studio Sculpt foundation SPF15 (recommended for dry/normal skin) and CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 foundation SPF20 (recommended for oily/normal/combination skin) are both amazing foundations with SPF that don’t leave a white face. 

Are BB/CC creams okay to use? Taking from my personal experience, I’ve never had any problem with Asian BB creams WHEN I set my face with a powder after and WHEN they’re a perfect match. Even if it was SPF50 I never encountered any problem. I can’t tell for western BB creams though…

Finally, I’d still suggest SPF (on your face and body) because you can prevent a lot just by using it. If you put makeup, the chances of white cast are lower because of all the products you’ve used after, the effectiveness of your SPF is reduced. 

Since you have to re-apply protection every 2 hours, how can you do that when you already have a face full of makeup? 
Powders with SPF are a good way to go, plus you are re-touching your makeup. BareMinerals has an amazing range of powders with SPF. Face mists or makeup setting sprays with SPF can also be an option. Keep in mind that you won’t get the same kind of protection as if you were applying liquid sunscreen all over your face! It is only okay for touch-up. Don’t base your whole sun protection on SPF makeup.

Here are some foundation recommendations depending on the skin type:

(FYI: I have oily-combination skin. Dealing with an oily T-Zone (nose and forehead) and normal to dry in the other parts of my face. My skin type has changed over the past few years so I experimented LOTS of foundations.)

For oily skin: CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous SPF20, Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo, Revlon Colorstay (liquid formula for oily skin), MAC Studio Fix Powder, MAC Studio Fix Fluid

For dry skin: MAC Studio Sculpt SPF15, Revlon Colorstay Whipped Foundation, YSL Le Teint Touche Éclat

For all skin type: Make Up For Ever HD, L’Oréal True Match, Sephora 10H Wear Perfection

For sensitive skin: Be sure the product you are using is fragrance free or at least, know what ingredient(s) your skin tends to react to.

Hi! I want to set my liquid foundation with a powder but I’m confused as to which one I should use. I’ve seen setting powders, face powders, mineral powders and translucent powders… What’s the difference between them all? Thanks!

Creams, liquids, gels, stains, minerals, powders, pencils, lacquers, glosses, with so many different formulations of products on the market it can be confusing as to which one you should be using…

Toudou Jinpachi make up tutorial

So I got a ton of compliments at Sakura Con on my make up for everyone’s favourite sleeping beauty Toudou Jinpachi. So I thought I would share what I did with the world! This will be very long, so I’m gonna go ahead and put it under a Read More after step 3 or 4 or something.

Things I Used:
-so many make up brushes (spooley brush, liner brush, powder brush, make up sponge, domed shadow brush, lip liner brush)
-NARS creamy concealer in Chantilly
-Urban Decay powder foundation in Fair Neutral
-Urban Decay: Naked On The Run palette
-Urban Decay: Naked Basics 2 palette
-Urban Decay: 24/7 glide on eye pencil in Perversion
-Urban Decay mascara Perversion
-Stila: Stay All Day waterproof liquid liner in Intense Black
-NYX Wonder Pencil in WP01 Light/Clair
-Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water
-Burts Bees chapstick
-CeraVe moisturizer
-Reference pictures!!! (I recommend one of the character, and one of another fellow cosplayer who’s make up you really like if you can find one!)

The make up I use is all rather high end stuff (perks of working at ULTA), but go ahead and use whatever similar products you have! Just make sure your shadows and contours and bronzers don’t have shimmer or anything, make everything matte! Cheap brands I recommend are ELF Cosmetics and NYX Cosmetics. You can find ELF at Target, I believe they also have NYX products…but ULTA has a far larger selection of NYX products. I think most drugstores also have a pretty average selection for NYX…go ahead and browse around!

FIRST STEP: MOISTURIZE YOUR SKIN

Wash your face and moisturize with your favourite moisturizer (Cera Ve is my favourite), also apply any acne medication you may use at this point. Also put on your chapstick now and let it soak in while you do the rest of your face. Put on your wig cap to avoid messing up your make up later! It also keeps your hair out of your face.
(*edit: I forgot to mention, if you also have a foundation primer USE IT HERE. I use the Smashbox Primer Water because my skin is super sensitive and reacts badly to any primer with silicone in it, which is most facial primers. All sorts of primers give different results, so go ahead and try some if you’re interested! They keep your foundation nice and even and provide a good base to put your concealer and foundation onto. They of course aren’t required, but a nice little bonus if you can afford them and find one that works well for you and your skin!)

SECOND STEP: CONCEAL

Conceal all of your blemishes! I have a ton of them.

THIRD STEP: FOUNDATION

Apply your favourite foundation! I would recommend using your favourite matte foundation. Also be sure to cover your ears! Ears get red too. Don’t forget your neck either. If you use a liquid foundation, or a BB cream or CC cream then make sure to set it all with a powder when your done, to make sure it doesn’t melt off your face during the con or during photo shoots. I recommend the ELF High Definition Powder, it’s super cheap and can be found at Target.

FOURTH STEP: BRONZE AND CONTOUR

Apply your bronzer, apply it to your temples, along your hairline, under your cheekbones and along your jaw.

A tip when applying bronzer and contouring for a guy, is to apply your bronzer and concealer in this pattern. Under your cheekbone, but bring it down towards your jaw. JUST MAKE SURE TO BLEND BLEND BLEND IT ALL OUT.

Do you have foundation and concealer recommendations for us pale bitches? I'm so white you can see the veins in my face if you stand close enough 😂😑

The NYX total control drop foundation has some pretty pale shades in the line. Too Faced Born this way, Maybelline Fitme matte and poreless, and Loreal true match super blendable have shades that fall in the very fair side.

Tarte Shapetape concealer, NYX Hi Definition Photo Concealer, ABH Pot concealer and the KVD concealers all have some pretty pale shades as well so pair with the foundations. Just try to get a concealer that’s a shade lighter than your foundation if you’re going for a highlighted effect rather than just concealing darkness under the eyes to blend in.

NYX also has foundations mixers in white and pale shades that you can add to your foundation to lighten it up and match it to your skin better 😊

Can you name any foundations good for really dry yet sensitive skin? Both drugstore and high end.

Why yes I can :) i personally have this same skin concern so I can give you some of my fav foundations. I really love the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless. It’s easy to build up and it keeps my skin smooth. Usually, my skin will suck up as much moisture as it can and then my foundation will look really dry and tacky. But this drugstore foundation sits beautifully on my skin. I always need a backup of this one in my collection. Another great foundation is the Kat Von D Lock-It foundation. It’s full coverage and looks really great. This has been my ultimate favorite since I started using high-end makeup back in 2012. I cannot live without this foundation. I’ve recommended it to so many people and it’s now my mom’s favorite too. Those are my top 2 :)
